for by the common error of thinking that,
because useful knowledge should be remembered,

but we somehow never seemed to lack anything we needed,
and I never saw a trace of discontent or a failure
in cheerfulness over their lot in life,

- Albert J. Nock

The question of who is right and who is wrong has seemed
to me always too small to be worth a moment's thought,
while the question of what is right and what is wrong
has seemed all-important.
- Albert J. Nock
